Other important information:

  • Climate: 1200-1300-meter altitude. Temperatures ranges from 15-30 C. Rainfall averages around 500 mm annually. Short rains in October-December, long rains in March-May.
  • Water: Farm water comes from harvesting systems using roofs and dams.
  • Electricity: Farm no. 2 is connected to the national power grid (TANESCO), with 3 phase electricity.
  • Farming/Crops: Planting of crops is once per year. The company firmly believes in rotation of the land, meaning, one year a cereal crop, the next year a legume crop and then a year or two fallow, where the livestock can graze. This maintains healthy quality of soil and good agricultural productivity.
  • Fertilisers/herbicides/insecticides: Company has not used chemical fertilizers for more than 15 years. The fields are fertilized by livestock manure and leaving the unused fields fallow for a year or two, this builds up organic matter, which we plough back in when preparing the field for the coming year. We do not use herbicides. We use insecticides only when absolutely necessary. The minimal use of chemicals is in order to preserve and build the quality of our soil, and to have a healthy ecosystem, as well as to offer more healthy produce
